About LGT Venture Philanthropy
LGT's CEO H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein founded LGT Venture Philanthropy in 2007 with the mission to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people, contribute to healthy ecosystems and build resilient, inclusive and prosperous communities.
We scale innovative organizations and companies by providing a tailored combination of capital, access to professional skills, management know-how and strategic advice. Our portfolio organizations and companies are active in key impact sectors, including: education, health and environmental protection and restoration. Through our engagements, we directly contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With effective, innovative, and scalable models, our portfolio has the potential to sustainably improve the quality of life of millions of disadvantaged people, providing access to essential goods and services, or protecting and restoring the environment.
As part of the strategic support to our portfolio, we established the LGT Impact Fellowship program. It connects us and our portfolio with professionals who have the right, relevant experience to help us and our organizations scale. In our blog, the Fellows describe their day-to-day work on the ground.
